French Creek Post Office


This post office, originally located on Columbia Beach, served the local community from 1888 to 1912.


The building is unique, as the logs were broad axe chopped to make the interior walls flat. Moss was used between the logs as chinking, and the logs were charred to increase longevity.
The building was donated to the Museum by the Tryon family in 1984.
